    Post verdict discussion of evidence

    Because, IMO, their disappearance after a friend (JA?) testified they had been in the foyer the day before NC disappeared, along with BC's washing the foyer floor that day, bolstered the theory that NC had been murdered in the foyer. The ducks and sticks needed to disappear because they were...

    I thought they were "rub marks", not scratches.

    State v. Bradley Cooper 5-2-2011

    I have been with my husband, here at home, for 1.5 hours. He has had a good look at me many times during conversations between the two of us. I asked him what I am wearing. He said a purple long sleeved shirt with flowers on it, and jeans. I wore that shirt yesterday. Today I am wearing a...

    I haven't heard any evidence that the murder took place in the house.

    If I were a jogger, nowadays I think I'd look into carrying a taser. Even big dogs are no match for guns.

    If it was a random attacker, that does not mean that he stayed in the Cary area afterward. I hope I never turn up murdered in a case in which there is no clear suspect except for my husband . My DH has a genius level IQ and he has a lot of specialized knowledge about three things: criminal...

    I knew someone who was randomly murdered about 30 years ago. One Sunday night, he took his fiance to the airport and she got on a plane to her home state, 2000 miles away. He went home. The next morning, he was found brutally murdered. Most of the possessions in his house were gone...

    State v Bradley Cooper 4-28-2011

    Maybe there was bird dookie from a bird known to frequent the dump site area, and the same type of dookie was also on BC's shoe. Maybe there was a bird feather at the dump site, and a similar feather from the same type of bird was found next to the straw in BC's foyer.

    State v Bradley Cooper 4-28-2011

    She had $150-$200 a week for things other than food. I think she had a generous allowance at BC's salary level.

    State v Bradley Cooper 4-26-11

    That is a good point about NC being able to leave earlier. However, it could very well be that she wanted to stay married for the sake of the children, and tried to make a satisfying life for herself, despite having an unsatisfactory marriage. I would find it very difficult to deprive my...

    The picture was a nice one that hid a loveless and lonely marriage.

    No. Just don't ask them any questions.

    Not too much faster -- didn't they have plans with another couple that evening? I wonder what BC would have told them. Unless I'm totally off base about the plans, of course.

    It isn't inconceivable to me, obviously. I've heard of the carotid artery hold more than a few times over the years. It came up in casual conversation. I never researched before so I was not sure it was a true way to kill someone. If I were planning to kill a person, I'd look it up. So it...

    Sorry, I couldn't answer your question about the point of my posting the article earlier. Kids and 3 month old puppy demanded my immediate attention. Now that I've read this stuff, I see how easily this scenario could have taken place: Brad strangles NC in the foyer using the carotid artery...

    I found a lot of things interesting in this article. Here they are: Focusing on the visible signs of strangulation, we found that police officers reported no visible injuries in 62 percent of the cases. Minor visible injuries, such as redness or scratch marks, were reported in 22 percent of...

    Which ME report? I can't find that information in the autopsy report.

    INJURIES There is a faint linear mark across the central neck in the area of the thyroid prominence approximately 1.3" in length. At the left margin there are several circular insect defects. Internally, there is dark discoloration of the anterior strap muscles on the left without definite...
